Return to Comic Color

I’m not actively working on these comic pages anymore (or rather, I’m taking a break to work on a prose version of the narrative).  But I might as well post what’s already done.  Everything that’s posted so far is here.

Color comic book page.  Panels feature an intense boxing match between a grey squirrel and a bobcat.Color work starts to get a bit …candy-ish around here.  But, hey!  Color.  Don’t see too much of that around my blog.

Ghost Squirrel Scene Two – Layouts version 2

Right-o!  Reworked boxing scene in full.  Page 5 has an extra panel.  The original (second version) was fine and all, but it didn’t quite match the pacing of the rest of the scene.

The scene is meant to be a quick paced teaser to establish the rather important plot point that Squirrel is…well…already dead!

Comic book pencil layouts featuring many small panels. An owl watches a boxing match, looks a little worried, and nervously holds a pocket watch. Meanwhile, the bobcat and squirrel fight.
